Updated: Apr 13

So good with coffee or tea, this tender cake is at its best when served warm. For a special treat, serve it alongside a scoop of vanilla nonfat frozen yogurt.

Recipe Ingredients:

Makes 8 servings.

Recipe found in Millie Snyder's 3rd Generation Cookbook, P 244


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour

  • ½ cup whole wheat flour

  • 2 teaspoons baking powder

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

  • 2 egg whites

  • 1 cup vanilla nonfat yogurt

  • 1/3 cup firmly packed brown sugar

  • 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon canola oil

  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract


  • 1 tablespoon firmly packed brown sugar

  • 1 tablespoon wheat germ

  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon

Cooking Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Spray an 8-inch square baking pan with nonstick cooking spray.

In a large bowl, combine both types of flour, baking powder, and baking soda. Mix well.

In another bowl, combine remaining cake ingredients. Beat with a fork or wire whisk until blended.

Add to dry mixture, mixing until all ingredients are moistened.

Spoon into prepared pan.

In a small bowl or custard cup, combine topping ingredients, mixing well. Sprinkle evenly over cake.

Bake 25 to 30 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean. Place pan on a wire rack and spray the top of the hot cake lightly with nonstick cooking spray.

Serve warm for best flavor.
